it snowed up north. quite a lot. as we got closer to
the lodge last fri. i began to wonder if i'd be walking
up the long driveway. my boots happened to be in
the box of the truck- frozen stiff. aaaghh i had on
impractical shoes and could NOT have been more
thankful for the goodness in the world when we saw
that our kind neighbor had plowed our driveway!
it was night and dark when we arrived- not my idea
of a fun stroll. the next morning the sun broke out
and it was a be-U-tiful day.
pretty isn't it?
fortunately we all love snow~ we snow shoed both
days and i'm not going to lie- i was huffing and
puffing (and there were not 3 little pigs in this story).
this was a lot of snow to trudge through!
now the big project of the weekend was in
full swing- that's lars cutting a hole in a perfectly
good roof to thread a stovepipe through. he told
me it kind of killed him to do it- but it had to be
done. thank God he got it done safely and having
our first fire sat. night was such a thrill!
note: o.s.h.a would so not have approved of
this set up- see the ladder? it's balanced on the
4-wheeler. i just do lamaze breathing and
keep busy doing other things while these men of
mine do all varieties of dangerous stuff. i looked
up the number for 911 tho and posted it in a
prominent location. (just kidding- it was the
# of the nearest hospital- 35 minutes away).
a blurry camera phone shot is all i've got to
show you- but you can see it right? this room
just became our favorite with the addition of
the stove. it's going to be great to hunker down
and warm up by for years to come. i'm
so glad i married a man who knows how to do
so many things- my favorite right now is that he
fixed my computer which crashed on friday-
thanks honey! blog readers, i'm baaaacckkk!
